Next summer, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) will begin construction on a $5.5 million project to rebuild SE Powell Blvd between SE 111th and 174th. The plans call for a host of changes, including a new widened shoulder for bicycle access. How exactly that shoulder is used, and what type of bike facility ends up on it, will be one of the main topics up for discussion at an open house this Wednesday.
Last night a 22-year-old Southeast Portland man riding a bicycle and a Portland Police criminalist driving an official vehicle were involved in a collision on SE Powell Boulevard.
